In conclusion, if anyone still believes that CO2 does what scientists claim it does, I suggest you think about that the next time you are at a campfire, or near a candle, or any other fairly stable heat source. Move toward it, then move back. Also, find a nice masonry wall that has ample sunshine on it. Just after dusk, when the sun is no longer shining on the wall, place your hand on the wall and feel its warmth. Then, move slowly away from the wall and see how long you can continue to feel the warmth. Think about that little CO2 molecule, having to also feel that warmth, get all excited, absorb the heat, and then re-radiate the heat back out again. Remember that scientists insist that the Earth warmed from 1910 to 1940 - yet CO2 was very, very low.
Also, have a look at Anthony's blog and E.M. Smith's blog. Think about this: if the science is settled and we must act now or lose the Earth's future to a hell of warming, rising oceans, monster hurricanes and all the rest, why did the CERN experiment show that clouds are far more important than CO2? Why do the satellite temperature measurements show the models' predictions are all wrong? Why has nothing ever panned out for the climate warmists? The only thing they can point to is the declining ice in the Arctic, but as I discussed above, they have that completely wrong.
Finally, have a look at the temperature graphs of the USA's cities on SLB. See for yourself how many, many cities have zero warming or a slight cooling. Then, ask yourself how can that be? How did CO2 get so smart that it can selectively ignore some cities?
CO2 is innocent. It always has been, and always will be.
